Who is lackadaisical?

What in the world is Environmental Apathy?

Renée Lertzman asks, “How is it possible to know more about global warming but feel less concern?”

Start on a film-making excursion today.  Because of COVID-19, you are staying home to stop the spread of the coronavirus, order some tree seeds, and begin your journey into vlogging. Pop outside in your back-yard for some soil.  Start by preparing the soil.  Consider how you might do this in a carbon-zero way.  Recycle a plastic container for a plant pot, or use an egg shell.  Plant these seeds.  Nurture your seeds in the sunlight and with just the right amount of water, not too much, not too little.  Think about the wetter, wilder, and warmer aspects of climate change, and how the watering can simulates climate change, and how it is affecting the seedlings in all their various containers.  Take images every day of this little seedling, and create an film or a vlog of the tree’s journey.

“Nature, time and patience are the three great physicians.” Chinese proverb

Richard St. Barbe Baker advocated that everyone become a forest scouts and that they should ” protect the  forest, plant ten native trees each year, and take care of trees everywhere. “  By taking starting tree seedlings, we are taking action and not settling into environmental apathy.

Today is Thursday,  April 9, and now we are into the second week of Earth Month. This year’s Earth Day 2020 theme is Climate Action.

“If we surrendered to earth’s intelligence we could rise up rooted, like trees.” Rainer Maria Rilke

This website is about the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area - an urban regional park of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. The hosts are the stewards of the afforestation area. The afforestation area received its name in honour of the great humanitarian, Richard St. Barbe Baker. Richard St. Barbe Baker (9 October 1889 – 9 June 1982) was an English forester, environmental activist and author, who contributed greatly to worldwide reforestation efforts. As a leader, he founded an organization, Men of the Trees, still active today, whose many chapters carry out reforestation internationally. {Wikipedia} Email is StBarbeBaker AT yahoo.com to reach the Stewards of the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area
